Older switchboards often have no RCD protection, which is a requirement for all new installations. They can often be very messy with cables everywhere, too—this makes it tricky to see circuits and fuses should you need to.
A malfunctioning switchboard is not only annoying but it can also pose a huge safety risk.
Upgrading your switchboard and tidying up and replacing the cabling provides peace of mind, and ensures that it will work smoothly in the years to come.
It greatly reduces any risk of electrocution or fires starting—both of which are, of course, events to be avoided at all cost! A switchboard upgrade means future-proofing your home and keeping everyone inside it a little bit safer. It also makes like a lot easier when it comes time to replace a fuse—a messy old board with cabling all over the place is tricky to navigate, as many homeowners will have discovered. Modern switchboards are much easier to deal with.
